Lio Rush tweeted about his move to the brand as well.

The twenty-three year old Rush has been wrestling since 2014 and has been with WWE since last year.

Last year, Lio Rush was the recipient of criticism when he made a comment about Emma being released by WWE which was not received well by fans and people within WWE.
